said. >>> before sandy, romney was on a roll topping president obama in poll after poll. but in the wake of the devastating superstorm, did sandy stall romney's momentum? here now are keith boykins and robert costa, jonathan colegio. mr. costa, i go to you on the conservative side. i think that barack obama did himself a lot of good. >> barack obama has had a decent week because he's been presidential in handling of this crisis in new jersey and new york. but ha we still see from the romney campaign is he's competitive in pennsylvania. he's competitive in ohio. he's trying harder. did it shake up the narrative, sure, but it's a very close race. >> my pal keith boykins on the other side of the coin. it looks to me like romney has gone behind enemy lines. he's parachuting behind enemy lines in pennsylvania and in michigan and in wisconsin and in iowa. he could be in trouble, keith. >> pennsylvania hasn't voted for a republican since 1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't co
, is president obama's midwest firewall actually crumbling? the latest rasmussen poll in the critical battleground state of wisconsin shows a dead heat. romney, obama, tied at 49%. so joining me now for an exclusive interview is governor scott walker, republican from wisconsin. governor walker, as always, sir, welcome back to the "kudlow report." we appreciate it. they're tied at 49% which is something of a surprise. the republicans strnts taken the state of wisconsin in a presidential election since 1492. so how does it look, how do you see it right now? >> well, i was out in green bay, wisconsin nearby where the president was today. i've been all over the state the last couple days. momentum is clearly on our side. and you expect that out of somebody advocating for candidates, but i've really seen it. we made 4.5 million voter contacts leading up to the june 5th election. we won by a bigger mar begin than we did in 2010. and that basis of support hasn't let up, that converted over to mitt romney, it got inspired when paul ryan was added to the ticket. but most importantly, the day a
christians who didn't bother to go the polls. about half because they weren't registered to vote. half were registered but didn't vote. we estimate that 340,000 of those were in ohio, alone. this is a state that obama carried with only 262,000 vote margins. so if they show up, it's going to be a big factor that wasn't there four years ago. >> why is no one else covering this, ralph? you've got hard numbers. first of all, first of all, you're talking about wisconsin and iowa as well as ohio, as well as pennsylvania. i mean, romney, that's landslide territory. what i want to ask you is this. why doesn't the press understand the story that you're telling, and to some extent, the work you've done? dan henneger did that absolutely. why don't they get that, ralph? why don't they talk about that? >> there has been a fair amount of coverage. front page story in "the new york times." there's been broadcast coverage. fox news has tone done it. there's been coverage of it. the main reason why, larry, is just this t-- it's not a new problem. it's a systemic problem that a lot of these voters are locate
them with a limited time to go. on the other hand, mitt romney can point to national polls and say i've gotten the upper hand since the first debate, so we will see whether the ground games get affected by this. obama's generally considered to have the more extensive and effective ground game. that, of course, is going to be tested on election day, but if some of that is interrupted, he and his people could be affected, and we'll see whether the early vote in places like north carolina, for example, where it matters some and florida is shaken up by this. >> and some that have early voting has been cancelled, larry. who does this hurt more in, your view? which candidate stands to lose the most as a result of this disruption of the campaigning? >> well, it's a very tough call. look, mitt romney has tremendous momentum behind him. not just in national polls. he's got state poll momentum in iowa and wisconsin, for example. today rasmussen just gave him the nod in ohio, that's the first time, so the question you want to ask is does this slow romney's momentum or not? i don't really think
